Under the reign of Ptolemy IV Philopator (reigned 221-204 BC), son of Ptolemy III and Berenice II of Egypt, the decline of the Ptolemaic kingdom began.
His reign was inaugurated by the murder of his mother, and he was always under the dominion of favourites, male and female, who indulged his vices and conducted the government as they pleased.
Self-interest led his ministers to make serious preparations to meet the attacks of Antiochus III the Great on Palestine, and the great Egyptian victory of Raphia (217), at which Ptolemy himself was present, secured the kingdom for the remainder of his reign.

 Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2000.10.25
In the fifth century BC Thucydides remarked on the uncouth practices of this backward, mountain people who ate raw flesh, and Euripides referred to the Aitolians explicitly as 'semi-barbarians.' In the eyes of Greeks of the established polis communities, then, the Aitolians had always stood at the fringes of the Hellenic cultural commune.
And sometime in the fourth century BC the loose cantonal Aitolian ethnê reorganized themselves into a federal koinon, providing, along with the Akhaian Confederation of Peloponnesian states, one of the most strikingly distinctive and progressive features of the Hellenistic age: the Greek political experiment in federal representative democracy on a large territorial scale.
Aitolia therefore presents an historical paradox of sorts -- its inhabitants reputed to be uncivilized and backward, yet an example of an enlightened and progressive political cooperative of discrete communities in response to the threat to local autonomy posed by the Makedonian monarchy.

 Roman dictator - Art History Online Reference and Guide
He was appointed dictator rei gerendae causa for a full year in 46 BC and then designated for nine consecutive one-year terms in that office thereafter, functionally becoming dictator for ten years.
The office was later offered to Caesar Augustus, who prudently declined it, and opted instead for tribunician power and consular imperium without holding any office other than pontifex maximus and princeps senatus — a politic arrangement which left him as functional dictator without having to hold the controversial title or office itself.

Only after the lunar orbit was determined, and the changing orbital speeds of the Moon and Earth were established, could total solar eclipses be forecast to within the nearest month or less.
This level of sophistication in astronomy was reached by Greek astronomers around the first century BC followed by Chinese astronomers centuries later.
